SparkPeople Tiny Habits (BJ Fogg) Team Messageboard Team created to discuss Tiny Habits. Learning how to more easily create the habits that will help you lose weight/get fit. Based on BJ Fogg's book and materials. SparkPeople Tiny Habits (BJ Fogg) Team Messageboard Nice Video on the process of creating a Tiny Habit I got an email today from BJ Fogg (Tiny Habits) which lead me looking at some videos on his web page. <BR> <BR> I watched this one and liked the person's approach. <BR> Tiny habits is about finding something new you want to do: <BR> - figuring out where in your day/week that new habit fits (after X happens) <BR> - creating something tiny that gets you started on the task (e.g. a starter step or a small amount of the habit) and takes less than a minute. <BR> - choosing a way to celebrate you ... Wed, 16 Sep 2020 22:18:24 EST Ashenjoy's Notebook Comments are always welcome <BR> <BR> I'm truly new so will get the book and get started. I tend to be a perfectionist - a "if I can't do it right I won't do it" kind of person and I've already found some relief from that in the little I've read. <BR> <BR> I'll add to this once I get started. <BR> <BR> Wed, 5 Aug 2020 13:42:20 EST Book Chapter Two - Your talking points For Chapter Two, the two big ideas IMO we need to learn right now is Swarm of Behaviors and Focus Mapping to come up with our Golden Behaviors to turn into Tiny Habits. <BR> <BR> Note he also discussed some ideas that will come into play later on when you are doing recipes but don't affect the exercises for this chapter. That includes: <BR> --His PAC person (person wants to do it, context/environment motivates person to do it, action which is a carrot or stick that motivates a behavior) <B... Tue, 7 Apr 2020 21:06:06 EST Book Chapter Two - Questions and Exercises Let’s do our first pass at creating our Aspiration for weight loss, Swarm of Behaviors, and Focus Mapping. <BR> Future Chapters will help us create tiny habits from the results of these two exercises. <BR> <BR> 1. Determine your true aspiration. You want the aspiration you are most motivated to work on. Your behaviors are chosen because they directly achieve your aspiration. <BR> For example, lowering your blood sugar will include changing what you eat and how you exercise and that will h... Tue, 7 Apr 2020 20:56:46 EST Book Chapter One - Questions and Exercises Do you have any questions on the Fogg Behavior Model? <BR> <BR> Do you understand why we want to create a Tiny Habit that is easy to do even on our hard days? Don't worry if you don't see how that fits into what you really want to do with your habits, the future chapters will cover that. <BR> <BR> Exercises: Ok, for most things I can think of, we need more book reading. So let's focus on the exercises for the book introduction. You can also do the exercises BJ lists at the end of Cha... Thu, 2 Apr 2020 03:17:54 EST Book Chapter One - Share your talking points Fogg Behavior Model - This felt to me like the most important item in this chapter. <BR> <BR> Behavior = Motivation + Ability + Prompt (all 3 happening at the same time). <BR> We have to understand this to really understand Tiny Habits, this model and B=MAP is talked about a lot and affects how we create our tiny habits/transform our lives. <BR> <BR> Below is BJs standard B=MAP drawing – Note: I added a green dot and a purple dot. And I added/changed the labels of the behavior tasks. <BR...

Mon, 17 Feb 2020 20:14:17 EST How Tiny Habits become Baby Steps then lifestyles During the hang with the teacher portion after the official Chapter One webinar, BJ Fogg showed this idea. <BR> <BR> The Fogg Behavior model (discussed in chapter one of the book) shows how to choose items for your tiny habits that are above the action line (the curved line in the drawing). They have enough motivation and are easy enough to do that they fall above that curved line (e.g. need lots of motivation if harder to do, need less motivation if easy to do - the reason behind doing a t... Mon, 17 Feb 2020 17:38:28 EST Habits Vs Routines, they both get the job done... BJ described habits as something that you do automatically without thinking about it and routines as something you do regularly but don't do in a specific order (some days do the task but no other days, do the task different times different days, etc.). <BR> <BR> The same action can be either a habit or a routine depending how you do it. <BR> <BR> For example, if you make your lunch the night before it can be: <BR> A habit - if making your lunch for the next day is always done after the sam...
